Robin's is Volume I of THE WHOLE WORLD PASSES THROUGH: Stories from the Cornelia Street Cafe, celebrating 40 years of navigating this little craft through the treacherous waters of New York.

He writes in a wry, humorous style that takes you from glorious laughter one moment to reflective silence the next . . . " --Stephen Porter

After graduating college Rory set out to fulfill his life-long dream to be a stand-up but he also heard the echoes of his Italian Father's work ethic telling him to get a day job. So in the summer of 1999, he talked his way in to a job as a production assistant at The Daily Show, 6 months after Jon Stewart took over as host. As he worked his way through most every job at The Daily Show, Rory would take any free time away from the show to perform stand-up. He toured with Lewis Black on Lewis' 2007 Red, White and Screwed theater tour; he starred in his own Comedy Central Presents (2010) half hour special and was featured on John Oliver's New York Comedy Show (2011) on Comedy Central.

Cry Baby: My (Reluctant) Journey into Motherhood - The Pit (Peoples Improv Theater)
September 22, 2017 - New York City

Jamie had a baby. People ask her "how's it going?" and she's tired of saying "great!" Everyone lied to her about birth and beyond, so here's the raw truth. After this show, people may now ask "is she ok?" Whether you have a kid, are thinking about having one, or can't even keep a plant alive, it's vital you attend. Time Out New York (Critic's Pick): "Actress Jamie Aderski brings her solo show about the absurdity, mysteries and miseries of motherhood to the PIT. She faces the grim truths about maternity that nobody wants to talk about with joyous aplomb and plenty of laughs along the way." AFAR Local: "...there's no excuse to miss this raw and hysterical portrayal of parenthood that's just as appropriate for those who have kids at home as for those who intend never to procreate." The Broadway Blog: "Motherhood is no f-ing joke. And comic Jamie Aderski will be the first to agree with me on that … At its best, though, Aderski's piece is personal and honest, which does strike a humorous chord, as so many of the hardest things in life can be if you just take a step back and see the funny through the pain." Comedy Cake: "This show will change your perceptions whether that ... (read more)
